The story behind the Grand l'Hôtel du Louvre



The Grand Hôtel du Louvre is located in the centre of the artistic and historical town of Valognes, also known as "Normandy’s Little Versailles", with its private town houses and museums; the hotel was originally a XVII th century coach house and has retained its authentic charm to this day.


The Grand Hôtel du Louvre boasts a large paved courtyard, a number of stables and a coach shed that is now used as a garage.

Each bedroom has its own style and includes antique furniture, enabling the hotel to keep all its historical charm.

The famous writer Barbey d’Aurevilly, who also studied in Valognes, once stayed in room no. 4 and lunched in the current restaurant dining room every day from 24 th July to 4 th November 1871.


The prime location of the Grand Hôtel du Louvre means that you need only step outside and you are at the start of a journey of discovery of the old town of Valognes and its museums and town houses, and from there into the bocage landscape.
Located in the heart of the north Cotentin peninsula, a stone’s throw from Saint-Vaast-La Hougue, Barfleur, Cherbourg, Carteret and the Hague headland, the Grand Hôtel du Louvre lets you discover the whole region the easy way.
